IT Staff Augmentation
A significant portion of Marathon's revenue stream is derived
from staff augmentation, or "staff aug" services. The staff aug
delivery mode is characterized by Marathon providing one or more
technical experts to a client in order to augment or supplement
their internal IT resources. Staff augmentation engagements are
typically defined by their duration, the technical qualifications
of the consultants, and defined hourly bill rates for each assigned
consultant. Bill rates are established based on the consultant
skill set, role on the project, and duration of the engagement.
Price discounts are available for full time staff aug engagements
that exceed six (6) months contiguous months of duration. Staff
augmentation services are also referred to "supplemental staffing"
and the characteristics are the same.
During a staff augmentation engagement, the client is
responsible for managing the project to which the consultant is
assigned. Therefore, Marathon's "deliverable" under a staff aug
arrangement is the consultant.
The types of technical and professional expertise available
through Marathon's staff augmentation services are quite extensive.
The following list illustrates the areas of expertise available
through staff augmentation.
